The Crownless Queen chapter 1 . 7/30/2017
I loved the take you took on Alecto's early life in this. I do believe you made the Carrows more mysoginistic than they probably were canonically (though it's such an interesting question - like how does the wizarding world see women and sexism? It doesn't seem that present canonically, but I can also totally see the more traditional pureblood families behave in the way you wrote here?)
I really enjoyed your characterization of Alecto - how she still managed to educate herself when her father tried to stop her, and finally the scene with the Dark Lord at the end was perfect. Of course she'd go with him and trust him if he promised to give her access to the education she hadn't been able to get and promised he wouldn't care like the rest of her family did :)
Nice work!
Cheers :)

This story is one-of-a-kind! I loved how you wrote Alecto's miserable childhood and her pent up rage is so understandable! LOVED THIS!
